I know you often post cool city signs and I saw this ridiculously cool one on a site I often search for old picture of DC (www.shorpy.com). Apparently 1727 7th Street NW used to be the “Happy News Cafe” back in 1933. Thought this was pretty cool. May not be new info, but it’s new to me.

I also like the caption under the picture.
